A public consultancy phase for feasibility studies is expected for early next year to define aspects such as required investments and canon payments to prepare the tenders, the report said.

Currently, Infraero holds a 49% share in five special purpose companies created with the private sector to operate five airport concessions. They are Guarulhos (São Paulo state), Viracopos (São Paulo) Brasília (Distrito Federal),Galeão (Rio Grande do Sul), and Confins (Minas Gerais).

The São Gonçalo do Amarante airport in the state of Rio Grande do Norte has also been concessioned. It is 100% private.
